Carnegie Hall, look out!

Zoe Elias has big musical dreams. As soon as she gets a glossy baby grand piano, she’ll be on her way. Trouble is, what Zoe gets is a wood-grained, vinyl-seated, wheeze-bag organ. The Perfectone D-60.

How will she ever be discovered as a prodigy when her lesson book is The Hits of the Seventies? Not even a cha-cha beat can make the theme song from The Brady Bunch sound like Beethoven. If you add to that problem a mom who’s always at work, a dad who’s afraid to leave the house, and an odd boy who follows her home from school every day, Zoe’s big dreams are looking pretty lopsided.

But when she enters the annual Perform-O-Rama organ competition, Zoe discovers that life is full of surprises–and that maybe a little lopsidedness will help her find what she’s really hoping for. Download and start listening now!

    " Totally surprised by how charmed I was. Every single bit of it, from the different set up to the characters to the writing. And the organ. Is it really so hard to deal with special needs in understated ways like this? If Linda Urban and Gennifer Choldenko can do it, so can other authors. Learn from them, other authors. "

    " I listened to the audiobook: the narration was excellent--a perfect Zoe. I enjoyed Zoe's character and her realistic struggles. The ending felt a bit abrupt to me--what happened to her new friend from the organ competition? Didn't she feel at all sad when the organ (who helped her grow and place in the competition) was leaving? "
